Custom Black Shagreen Table Made to Order in Los Angeles CA (02:41)
http://rojeleather.com/leather-exotic-furniture.aspx We have a local artisan who hand cuts and sets custom shagreen tables for our clients. With over 35 years' experience our partner ranks in the top 3 as far a luxury artisans in all of the U.S. with over 400 pieces in their portfolio. Shagreen is one of the most difficult and tricky exotic skins to work with. Many claim to be experts, while the reality is something altogether different. Did you know the word "shagreen" is French and there is a few century old sang "to shrink like shagreen" Those that have dared to experiment with this exotic skin can contest to the meaning. There is a reason these pieces of art are rare and expensive, not only from the material side, however, it's rare to find an artisan who fully understands all the complex dynamics involved from the fabrication side. We heard projects taking up to three times to complete, meaning that when designers and "manufactures" try and cut corners and farm their work out to lesser experienced and budget workshop or when a greedy contractor tries and to save money and order either skins or finished pieces direct from someone off the internet in the Far East; they often get what they pay for and a huge headache and a pissed off clients to boot. If you are going to create a luxury timeless piece of art do it right the first time or don't do it at all.

Rojé stingray skin is among the softest available in the exotic leather industry; our skins are tanned with a proprietary blend of tanning formulas and oils for the softest, most pliable stingray skins with the most prominent diamond-shaped crowns. Our colors are vibrant, without any of the green or yellow hues that can often be seen when the hides are improperly tanned with inferior chemicals and oils.

Stingray is a highly versatile leather and Rojé offers the largest revolving stock of stingray colors, finishes and sizes available. We have proudly served our clients in producing luxury furniture, seating, belts, and wall covering veneers.

Standard finished stingray hides are not altered from their natural feel and appearance; they feature the smooth stippled bumps (or beads) with a signature diamond shape in the center made up of a calcium deposit.

Sizing for Stingray Hides

Every stingray skin has two breathing hole cuts from the upper portion; these holes and the space between them are not considered in the grading of the finished skin. The stingray size is determined by measuring the widest area below these two breathing holes.

A common size for a stingray skin used in leather production is approximately 11 inches. The wider the skin, the more rare it is; the largest skins used in production are around 15 inches. These extra large skins amount to only 5% of all wild-caught rays.

Rojé has standard sizing from Small to XXL (also known as 'saddle size'). Each increase in size is determined my measuring the width by inches:

Small5 - 6 in.
Medium7 - 9 in.
Large10 - 12 in.
XL13 - 14 in.
XXL15 in. and up

*Note that all exotic skins are a commodity, and as such, all of our leathers are subject to availability.

Legalities and Conservation

Most people do not realize that stingrays are a type of fish. All stingrays are equipped with a long, flexible whip-like tail that feature spines with a barb-like hook. When threatened, a stingray can unleash a poisonous attack that is as painful and dangerous as a snake bite.

Stingrays are commonly found in warm bottoms of shallow parts of the ocean and bays. Our stingray is the non-threatened and non-endangered dasyatis species and is often a source of food in many regions of Southeast Asia.

Production Orders

With a reasonable production minimum, Rojé can produce new customized prints and colors for clients who are past the sampling phase of their pRojéct and ready for production. We currently have 100,000 stingray skins available in crust, ready to apply any Pantone® color or an image you would like printed onto the skins within 30-45 days. Contact us with your pRojéct details to discuss.
